As a firefighter, I face many stressful situation on any given shift. I have learned over the years that it pays not to get caught up in the tunnel vision affect. I have learned to stay calm and look at the big picture. It is an emergency but it is not my emergency, as bad as that sounds. If I do not stay calm and keep my people calm the situation tends to worsen. It is kind of like my drivers, if they do not drive in a safe manner and wreck us trying to get to the incident, we are helping no one. I need to remain calm, no matter what the emergency is.
I am learning new ways to manage stressful events in my life everyday. As an aspiring chief officer, I need to really learn and develop these skills to be able to lead my department. Learning how the brain functions is a lot to take in at once. I feel that a better understanding of the brain and all of its pieces will be a tremendous help in dealing with stress.
